6:18 am
poconos, and you could be finding there anywhere from six plus inches of snow. it will be very slow to change over. and that's why you keep your precipitation longer, and colder, and that's why it is going to be snow there. but we do not have any of those watches or warnings through the philadelphia area. let's time this out. keep your eye on the clock here i'll stop it a million times. this is a look at 4:00 sunday afternoon, subject to change as you know, we've been through this before, things do tends to change. sometimes very close to the event, if not in the event. so, this is the way the computer model says right now 4:00 in the afternoon through allentown, poconos start to see some of that snow off to the west, lancaster, do you see little bit of mix out there. so just take it easy on your sunday afternoon plans from west to north. but this moves in our direction. you don't have to move. it will come and find us. so, snow continuing through allentown, poconos we see that mix line coming through philadelphia, this is a look at 8:00 at night with some rain, and maybe even little mix to the south. that mix line is right through
6:19 am
the philadelphia area, or just south of that, 10:00 o'clock on sunday night rain to the south, continuing to snow to the north that's why they've got the winner storm watch. by 1:00 in the morning still snow to the north that mix line has moved north of philadelphia, approaching the trenton area, and then, by the time we get to 7:00 monday morning, it should be rain through philadelphia, mix through the north that can be some of the worse of it, as you know, and then some snow to the north of that and wrap-around snow showers to tail this thing off and get it out of here. coating to an inch well to the south, one to 3 inches generally, the way it looks right now through philadelphia, three to six to our immediate northwest suburbs, six plus through allentown, maybe you could see as much as ten to 12 inches through the poconos. computer models, say let's put them all out finish this entire storm only one says we see 5 inches every snow in philadelphia, everybody else says it is a .10 of an inch of snow. so i think one to three is probably going to safely get us through the philadelphia
